General Assembly Resolutions
Since the rise of the World Assembly from the ashes of its predecessor, the Bureaucracy That Cannot Be Named, WA member nations have worked tirelessly to improve the standard of the world. That, or tried to force other nations to be more like them. But that's just semantics.
Below is every World Assembly resolution ever passed.
General Assembly Resolution # 81
A resolution to improve world security by boosting police and military budgets.
Category: International Security
Proposed by: Topid
The General Assembly,
Defining disaster as an event that causes massive loss of life or property damage,
Noting the vast amounts of wealth spent annually by member states, NGOs, and the World Assembly itself in providing humanitarian aid after disasters,
Recognizing that some of the loss of life and damage to property could be avoided if a nation had some warning a disaster was pending,
Seeking to prevent the loss of as many lives or the damage of as much property as possible when disasters occur,
I. Establishes the Global Organization for Public Safety (GOPS) which shall be tasked with monitoring public hazards,
(a) Defines public hazard as a condition, event, or situation that could become a disaster or makes a disaster possible or likely to occur,
(b) The GOPS shall operate:
(1) Meteorological centers to monitor the weather,
(2) Seismological centers to monitor risks such as earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic activity,
II. Authorizes the GOPS to inspect structures such as dams, levees, and high-rise buildings in urban areas, which could cause disasters if the structure was to fail,
(a) All the nations to be effected shall be alerted if there is a likely failure of the structure,
III. Mandates GOPS shall issue warnings to national governments when they suspect a disaster is pending, and shall also notify the various NGOs, WA Organizations, and National Governments which frequently send humanitarian aid, in the hopes the aid will arrive sooner if advanced notice is given;
IV. Declares member states maintain the right to operate their own disaster alert system,
(a) Such an organization must share all information about possible disasters with the GOPS,
V. Mandates member states to respond to alerts in a manner that will protect the lives of as many civilians as possible,
(a) If the GOPS finds a member state to have ignored an alert, or responded insubstantially to an alert, the member state shall be mandated to pay the victims of the disaster an amount determined by the GOPS.
General Assembly Resolution # 82
A resolution to reduce income inequality and increase basic welfare.
This World Assembly,
BELIEVING that clinical drug trials are essential to safe research and development of medication;
RECOGNISING that drugs which are initially tested before use are safer and more beneficial to the world healthcare system;
WISHING to create a uniform system, recognised by all WA-Nations, which can harmonise the system of drug trials across the world to improve medication therapy for the benefit of humanity.
REQUIRES Clinical Trials to be conducted along these lines;
1) Clinical Trials must have a placebo to be trialled alongside the actual drug, to counteract any possible psychosomatic interefence. These will then be trialled alongside a Control group, who receive no drug at all, to measure it's effects. Other formats of trials (variants of doses, comparisons of similar drug therapy options) will also be valid within this clinical framework.
2) Trials must be conducted in a Double Blind format, whereby neither the test subject, nor the person administering the drug is aware if the subject is taking a drug, or a placebo, in order to negate any influence from healthcare professionals, deliberate or otherwise.
3) All participants in Clinical Trials must have given their consent to be included in the trial.
4) All participants in a Clinical Trial must be made fully aware of any and all possible risks associated with the drug being trialled. Participants who wish to leave a trial, having been fully briefed of the side effects will be free to do so, subject to possible forfeiture of any possible monies earned for their participation.
5) Any persons who by way of age, disability, or mental competence are unable to give consent for the trial themselves, may be able to have a parent, guardian or ward of the court enter a consent on their behalf, if it is shown that there is a benefit to them participating in the trial.
CREATES the Clinical Excellence Commission (CEC), with the authority of overseeing clinical trials are conducted along these guidelines, compiling all unedited trial results and storing them for access from any state or healthcare authority, along with holding enquiries into any potential malpractice;
MANDATES that Clinicians or Nations may apply for exemptions from the regulations to the CEC, but such matters would have to be reviewed on a case by case basis and if any exemptions are granted, it will be due to extreme extenuating circumstances.
RECOMMENDS that the CEC work alongside health authorities of individual member states, in order to promote clinical trial standards and improve the harmony of healthcare across the nations of the World Assembly;
General Assembly Resolution # 83
A resolution to reduce barriers to free trade and commerce.
The World Assembly,
AWARE that commercial road vehicles carry cargo and passengers across international borders;
CONCERNED for the safety of operators and passengers of commercial road vehicles that travel internationally, along with those who share the roads with them; and
FURTHER CONCERNED that accidents involving commercial road vehicles can cause an extreme hazard to the safety of the passengers, operators, and cargoes of all road vehicles involved in the accidents, especially considering the relatively large size and weight of most commercial vehicles and their cargoes;
DEFINES "international commercial road vehicle" as a conveyance including and not limited to a truck, a trailer, or a motor coach, that
(a) is driven over public highways across one or more internationally recognized borders between member states, has a point of origin and a destination in two different member states, or both, and
(b) is used to transport freight or is used to transport ten or more passengers or both;
AUTHORIZES the International Transport Safety Committee to promulgate regulations related to the safety of international commercial road vehicles;
FURTHER AUTHORIZES the International Transport Safety Committee to promulgate training and competency standards for individuals who operate or maintain international commercial road vehicles;
FURTHER AUTHORIZES the International Transport Safety Committee to promulgate regulations related to the safety of roads and related infrastructure at points where roads cross international borders at which one or more member states operate customs, immigration, or other border checkpoints;
FURTHER AUTHORIZES the International Transport Safety Committee to recommend safety standards for domestic roads and related infrastructure;
REQUIRES the International Transport Safety Committee to assure that compliance with regulations promulgated pursuant to this resolution is feasible and that the costs of compliance with said regulations are justified by the benefits that result from them;
FURTHER REQUIRES the International Transport Safety Committee to assure that regulations promulgated pursuant to this resolution result in reasonable improvements to traffic safety;
REQUIRES owners of international commercial road vehicles to assure that their vehicles meet ITSC safety standards;
REQUIRES individuals who operate or maintain international commercial road vehicles to meet ITSC training and competency standards;
REQUIRES owners of bridges and tunnels that cross internationally recognized borders to assure that said bridges and tunnels meet ITSC standards;
REQUIRES governments that operate customs, immigration, or other border checkpoints to assure that signage, roads, gates, customs plazas, sidewalks, curbs, and streetlamps at those checkpoints meet ITSC standards;
STRONGLY URGES governments in member states to assure that their domestic roads and related infrastructure meet or exceed ITSC standards; and
PROHIBITS governments in member states from requiring international commercial road vehicles and operators from other member states to meet higher safety standards than those required by the ITSC, unless those higher safety standards also apply to domestic motor carriers.
General Assembly Resolution # 84
A resolution to increase democratic freedoms.
The General Assembly,
Appalled by governments that resort to enforcing disappearances, most commonly to deny individuals of their existing civil and political rights,
Defines a Forced Disappearance as a political tactic, where a government or government sponsored entity conceals the fate, or existence of an individual or a group of individuals who were required by said government to vanish from public view,
1. Prohibits member nations, and the World Assembly from forcing the disappearance of any individual;
2. Requires the reversal of the political tactics used against victims of forced disappearance by
(a) Releasing to the public all of the government documentation surrounding these cases of forced disappearances;
(b) Publicizing the whereabouts of these individuals, or the circumstances of their death;
3. Demands that there be no statute of limitation on forced disappearance;
4. Permits member states to protect the identities and whereabouts of an individual in a way that may bear characteristics of forced disappearances, provided that the intentions of this resolution are respected and that the said individual has given consent;
5. Declares that any organization of a member nation which utilizes the provisions of Clause 4 must be officially publicized to said member nation at least to the extent of the general purpose of the program or bureaucratic entity being publicly documented;
6. Requests that such public documentation must also include that the organization is utilizing Clause 4 of this document;
7. Welcoming the addition of further legislation on the subject by member states, such as providing reparations to victims of forced disappearances, or their families.
General Assembly Resolution # 85
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #81 “Disaster Preparedness Act” (Category: International Security; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
The World Assembly,
APPLAUDING the efforts of Resolution #81, Disaster Preparedness Act, for seeking to reduce loss of lives and damage to property by means of disaster preparedness and the coordination of national disaster alert systems;
UNDERSTANDING that disaster preparedness and the coordination of national disaster alert systems is indisputably crucial to reduce the loss of lives and damage to property when predictable disasters occur;
ALARMED that the resolution concerned does not have an established funding program to financially help any member state install the required disaster response systems; with the assumption being made that all member states were able to install such systems independently, whereas in reality poorer member states may not be able to afford it;
SADDENED by the fact that the Global Organization for Public Safety (GOPS) was not equipped to act in the most effective manner possible as it was not formally directed to:
Share disaster prediction data with national monitoring agencies;
Collaborate with member states that already possess perfectly competent agencies of their own for such matters;
Advise national disaster response agencies about "best practice" solutions to mitigate any potential risks:
APPALLED, with consideration to the arguments above, that GOPS would be able to penalise a member state for ignoring the warnings they issued, or for responding insubstantially to a warning; where in fact, the said member state could not afford to install any kind of disaster response system to adequately respond to such warnings;
FURTHER APPALLED that member states could be unfairly penalised for deploying their own (maybe long-established) disaster response plan that is sufficient enough, yet still viewed as being inadequate by GOPS for not being the best possible method of response;
HOPING that a more specific, well written and better thought out resolution concerning disaster preparedness can be drafted with due diligence;
HEREBY Repeals Resolution #81, Disaster Preparedness Act.
